Recently, I’ve had a few people ask me about why their websites rank so badly in Google.
Given that I’ve spent about 12 months researching this area, in order to improve the ranking of Computer Aid, I’ve learnt enough to keep me talking for hours!
So I end up sending huge emails, explaining all the things that need to be done, so that a website becomes “attractive” to google. I never actually realised how complex this field has become (and how expensive it is to get an expert to do a good job!). At this rate, I could end up getting some good SEO work (on top of all the other hats I currently wear! 🙂 )
What many people don’t realise, is that SEOis an ongoing task (with ongoing expenses). But given the rewards for appearing in googles “top 10”, many companies willingly spend thousands, even tens of thousand of dollars, in order to improve (or even just maintain) their ranking.
Anyway, I’m very pleased with the results of my own website.
For example, in January, when I did a search for “brisbane computer repairs”, computer-aid.com.au would be the 250th site on google. Now, its 4th. And it ranks very high for many other search terms.
It was a lot of hard work, but traffic to my website is growing rapidly every month. Its amazing, given that now I just do some minor site maintenance, compared to the bucketloads of work in the early days.
